Can we get some text to replace the ...? And I could not find the link to download the PTS wallet which I assume is where the ... are located.

Additionally, change the background image. Bitshares is not about 2 young people collaborating or doing something together.

At one glimpse, the user should understand that Bitshares is about finance, profits, prosperity for everyone etc. maybe use some of the big finance metropolis as a background image. But the current one is definitely not the image we want to express.
I am biased here as well  +5%


I agree. The stock images should go. I do like the "live" Vegas image though. Perhaps one similar to that with some network imagery for the main image.
Yeah I also assumed it was just a temporary stock image

Please don't use a Vegas image either.  That also sends the wrong message.

OK, but the event is in Vegas, so it sort of relevant  ;)

Beyond that, I was more referring to the style of the image with motion.

Buy, sell and trade BitShares instantly with anyone to and from anywhere as easy as sending email

Could probably do with some punctuation, for example :

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Hey Forum,

The team here in VA went through the entire site this morning looking at everything.  We came up with a list 4 pages long of edits/bugs/changes.  So please be patient as we get all those taken care of over the next week.  We're waiting on the web design company to either move it to wordpress or to gethub so we can make the changes ourselves, which hasn't happened yet. 

So you know, most every one of the things you said to change was on our list as well.  Once we make all the edits, we'll work on another list, and always strive to continually improve the site.  Thanks for your suggestions and check back over the next week as it gets refined.

BitShares does for business what bitcoin does for money is cool, but it has flaws.  Bitcoin is inherently flawed as money, and I don't think we want to imply that.   Let's have a small bounty to propose new motto. Thoughts?

Bitcoin is a financial revolution. Bitcoin challenge the financial system and a lots more to be said about. Bitshares only exist because of bitcoin. So to me "BitShares does for business what bitcoin does for money" it is very good in fact I think it is brilliant.

Bitcoin isn't inherently flawed as money. Money distribution via POW is a feature of its success, not a bug.

And I don't think insisting on how bad Bitcoin supposedly is will be very welcome by the crypto community.

Bitcoin is awesome, Bitshares too.

I think there is an issue with the site's width. It seems to be a relative width design, which is nice, but on Firefox on my 13'' Mac with a full screen browser window, I am getting a side to side scroll bar which is making the user experience really bad. Please check the relative width parameters.

Same with Firefox on 1280x800 Windows.

I'm getting the same things as cassiopaia in Firefox on Ubuntu 13.10. It works in Chrome, though.

Looks great! A few niggles I can think of though are when you google bitshares the site isn't in the first two pages of results and if you google bitshares.org the preview must be a pretty old index as it still mentions the 5% on every asset!

Site looks great!

One remark though: all the links to download the Keyhotee alpha give :

"Not Found

The requested document was not found on this server."
Worker: dev.bitsharesblocks

有什么好庆幸的!光个网页都搞了第3次。拿钱干活,别把捐ags的人当傻子!

Do you have coding experience? I understand your sentiments as you worth your investment like a damn sacred thing . Let me remind you that what your are investing is DECENTRALIZED in nature. So NO AMOUNT of investment of yours can say or do to make it fast in terms of developing the core of bitshares. Chill Out. We know that you have a lot of resources but apparently patience is not one of them. You see there are a lot of alt-currencies to invest in.But nothing comes close to the possible opportunities Bitshares may offer.

You guys have nothing to be proud of !It's the third time that you've released your website. Do make good use of the fund, don't take the AGS  donors as fools.
